Minature Landscape

TreeMinatureLandscape

This is a trompe l’oeil work. The shapes (and even the colors) are reminiscent of the red-rocks areas out West in the US. However, it is a close up of a moss covered tree trunk at the Shinto Shrine at Lake Ashi in the Hakone area. A bit of processing later and the “landscape” was ready for prime time!

This technique was inspired by a book I recently read entitled “Creative Landscapes” by Harold Davis in which the author urges landscape vision at both the large and small scales.
